The midfielder will miss this Wednesday's match against Almeria
Sergio Busquets will miss this Wednesday's match against Almeria due to the yellow card he saw against Celta de Vigo on Sunday. This Tuesday journalists asked to Luis Enrique if Busquets tried to force the yellow because he was told so. Luis Enrique said he only told him to be careful with cards, but not to force one.
Real Madrid player Arbeloa will also miss tomorrow's match against Rayo Vallecano, but he admitted to have forced the yellow: "I spoke with the manager and we decided to do it so I could rest against Rayo". He could have received more matches suspension for saying this, but in the end he will only miss one match.
